Reading at Willow Creek Elementary School

Today I read parts of Pearl of Richmond School to the five fourth grade classes at Willow Creek Elementary School in the Fleetwood School District.   They were a very attentive audience.   When it was time for questions, their hands shot up.  Here are some of their questions:

Where did the students go for kindergarten?

Did they have to take the PSSA’s?

How far did the students have to walk to get to the one-room school?

If there weren’t any water spigots, how did they wash their hands?

Where did they put on the Christmas play in the one-room school?

What would happen if a kid ran away?

And my very favorite question of the day was “When will you be famous?”   I just laughed.   Out of the mouths of children!
